Drug use is a major challenge for public services, healthcare professionals and policy-makers all over the world. This book offers a complete overview of the issues associated with substance misuse from an interdisciplinary perspective. It begins by providing a reference guide to the different psychoactive substances, looking at the biological and psychological impact of their use. Key issues in the effect drugs have on society are then addressed, before outlining methods of recovery and therapy.

Chapters include:

* Reflective questions to challenge readers' assumptions

* Case studies to help students understand the impact of substances on individuals

* Links to further resources to expand readers' knowledge

It will be valuable reading for those studying on degrees in criminology, health, nursing, social work and counselling.
